The sister company of Taiwan's internationally celebrated Cloud Gate Dance Theatre, Cloud Gate 2 presents the country's most talented young dancers and choreographers. This hotly anticipated triple bill is the first time Cloud Gate 2has performed in the UK.
Wicked Fish sees the dancers mimic a shoal of fish, as puzzle-like choreography competes with its complex score, while The Wall examines ideas of protection and segregation, highlighting the physical and mental barriers built around us. Cheng Tsung-lung's Beckoning focuses on how people can shift identities almost instantaneously, and creates a mysterious zigzag of body language with movements distilled subtly from Taiwanese street-dancing rituals that gives this abstract work a playful and poetic quality.
